Curious...What does one do with this verse?

I Peter 3:7 Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.

And then in Phil. 4:3

And I intreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those women which laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and with other my fellowlabourers, whose names are in the book of life.

A yokefellow is a fellowlabourer in Christ who's name is in the book of life.

Whether or not there is an explicit command it certainly is not a stretch to take all these verses and put them together and form the belief that it is not good, a sin even, to marry an unbeliever.

Again, if one has done so then seek not to be loosed but abide. I see it no different than any other sin, one that will be forgiven but you will have to give an account of it.
